Pride Week 2020 at Carolina (Canceled)

Notice: Pride Week 2020 Canceled

In light of the guidance that the University has sent out around COVID-19, the LGBTQ Center has made the decision to cancel Pride Week. While we are very disappointed to lose this chance to celebrate LGBTQ identity and community, we are also sensitive to the importance of social distancing in preserving the health of as many members of our community as possible.


Original Description

The LGBTQ Center will partner with other on-campus and community organizations to host the second annual Pride Week at Carolina from March 20th to 29th.

Pride Week at Carolina is a partnership between the LGBTQ Center, student organizations, University departments, and community organizations to host events that center themes of history, inclusion, intersectionality, expression, and advocacy within Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer, and Asexual (LGBTIQA+) communities. Pride Week 2020 events include:

  • T-Shirt Tie-Dyeing
  • Transgender Name Change Clinic
  • Exhibition and Artist Talk by Alexis Pauline Gumbs
  • Mixers for Faculty/Staff, and for Grad/Prof Students
  • Queer Prom

This year, the week will include over 25 events from collaborating sponsors who have pledged to:

  • ensure the affirmation of LGBTIQA+ individuals, especially those with multiple marginalized identities;
  • align with the LGBTQ Center's mission of fostering a welcoming and inclusive environment for UNC-Chapel Hill community members of all sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions
  • plan using the principles of Universal Design, so that events will be accessible by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for individual adaptation
  • prioritize spaces and venues that have gender non-specific restrooms or allow temporary signage affirming the right for transgender people to use the restroom of their choice
  • ensure that planning for events center the input, voices, leadership, and experiences of people within the LGBTQ community
